Relationships Matter Webinar
Offered by CNJG’s colleagues the Center for Effective Philanthropy. Join CEP President Phil Buchanan and Vice President, Research, Ellie Buteau, along with a panel of highly rated program officers, for a discussion of what it takes for funders to form and maintain strong relationships with grantees. In this webinar, Buteau will present findings from soon-to-be-released CEP research on the funder-grantee relationship, including what defines a strong funder-grantee relationship, the crucial role program officers play in working well with grantees, and what the data show to be the most powerful ways those program officers can strengthen their relationships. Buchanan will then facilitate a discussion with several program officers, who are highly rated through CEP’s Grantee Perception Report (GPR), about their experiences building relationships with their grantees, before opening the floor to the audience for questions and discussion. Attendees will come away with a clearer picture of what grantees see as the basis for strong funder-grantee relationships, as well as best practices to apply to their work at their own foundation.
Cost: $35 for CNJG Members and Non Member Grantmakers.
